    Refreshing our Relationships

    Humility August 9, 2018

     

     Some practices to help to refresh relationships through humility …

     

    1.     Utilizing previous refreshment themes of meditation and listening, take a long walk and reflect on the ways in which God is exceedingly great andpowerful … and yet … takes an interest in us and even the tiniest creatures of this world.

     2.     Make an extra effort to praise someone for their good work, (even if it is not “perfect.”)

     3.     Take time to memorize and (even more importantly?) internalize Philippians2:3-4 “Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.  Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.”

     4.     WITH CHILDREN: Reread the story of Luke 18 about the two individuals at prayer at the temple.  Ask how each child feels toward each of the pray-ers and prayers. If they are able, have each give an illustration of humility.
